I have replaced several blower motors on these units for that problem. If the board doesn't read the blower motor speed it won't turn the heater on.

Dried a load fine, next load tumbles wont dry. still cant get heat


Hi,

Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.


Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

No heat in dryer


along with a possible heating element gone bad there are several thermal fuses locate inside the dryer cabinet or sometime on the back behind the rear panel.
If you have a volt meter you need to check the continuity on each of the thermal fuses.Replace any of the ones that do not have continuity.

No heat in dryer


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Heats & drys fine but stops running after a long period of use and won't start back up right away. I assume it is cooling down then will run again.


Your dryer vent needs to be cleaned. Also, pull out the dryer and clean the part of the vent entering into the dryer from the back. This will cause the unit to cut out on thermal lockout.

My Kenmore series 80 dryer quit heating. It was intermitent for a few days then quit. I checked the inspection window and didn't see any light. The gas it on and it seems like there is a "click" after I...


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse.6aed02c.jpg If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor a%20flame%20sensor%202.bmp flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the igniter
a%20igniter.jpg Igniter and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.
If your gas dryer has a good flame sensor and a good igniter AND the dryer will work some and quit, replace these: dryer%20coil%20kit.jpg Gas operator coils The coils get hot and quit on these machines when they get a little age on them. It is aggrevating because it is a hard to diagnose thing. But well worth the 20 bucks.

Changing gas whirlpool dryer heating ailment


Before you do that try this pull the unit out from the wall remove the venting from the back run a load and let the hot air go intop the house if it drys fine you have a plugged vent going to the outside and it will need to be cleaned out (This is the most common problem for long dry time)
